Slow Cooked Cuban Pork

Kara Whalgren


1-2 lbs. pork loin (I like boneless)
1 Tbsp. Papa Joe's Salt
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 Tbsp cumin
3 oranges**
2 limes


Okay, fair warning: This is a two-step recipe. I suppose you could just throw everything in the slow cooker, but it's extra-awesome if you marinate it for a few hours, so I recommend going the extra mile on this one. It's worth it. Here's what I used.

Step 1: Marinate. Stab the pork with a grilling fork or any other poking device you have lying around.

Step 2: Throw the pork in a Ziploc bag with the Papa Joe's salt, oregano, and cumin. And then squeeze the oranges and limes. Put the mix in the fridge for a couple of hours, or overnight.
Step 3: Cook. Dump the contents of the Ziploc bag into your slow cooker and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.

**I think this would be awesome on a sandwich with cheese, honey mustard, and pickles. Or in a quesadilla.
